'That Field of Glory' Book Launch
Clontarf resident Colm Lennon is launching his book “That Field of Glory – the Story of Clontarf From Battleground to Garden Suburb” on Tuesday 10th June at 6pm in the Clasac, Alfie Byrne Road.

This book is the product of many years research into the locality. As well as giving a local history of Clontarf, the book also gives a local perspective on national developments.
